Abstract

In Australia AFOLU could abate as much as three quarters of the country's emissions and deliver improved landscape-scale adaptation in the face of climate change. As a nation of predominantly small land-holders, regional aggregation of AFOLU activities will be required to successfully mitigate climate change. This chapter outlines an innovative approach that is emerging in Queensland's Wet Tropics. Lessons from Australia's Wet Tropics Project can help define and highlight implementation issues that move beyond land tenure, governance and technical capacity; issues Australia has largely resolved.
